    No kidding, the instructor is at the front desk flying in the classroom over the students heads at they take a test, using FPV.

    Seems a little fishy, but worth a peek at this video clip on LiveLeak:

    Looks like a DJI knock off?

    Must be a dozen reasons not to be doing this...
    least of which would be noise and wind off props
    greater concern of course is injury

    I think he is flying line of sight and she is observing students using wi-fi from the GoPro, which is asking for problems in addition to all the wi-fi that must saturate a school classroom.

    If a knock-off, sure looks DJI complete with DJI decals.

    "OK kids, put on your ear plugs and hang on to your papers!"

    such impractical crap! with that size of classroom, they should just (even temporarily) install a 360' ip camera in the middle of the class.

    If they need to record taking the test, how about the instructor wear a "chesty" mount or a head strap GoPro and walk around the classroom. Yes, heaven forbid, get up and walk around. No more disruptive than a noisy quad.

    This has got to be the worst use for a Phantom I've ever seen. And I'd be pretty pissed if I paid for my kid to get an education from someone who thought it was a good idea.

    They're also using the gopro's wifi for the video signal, lag and all. As soon as they try this in a big room, their little bull-in-a-china-shop experiment will be over real quick when they lose control of the Phantom.
